Psalm 139:1 (ESV)

1 O LORD, you have searched me and known me!

The author understands that the Lord knows him through and through. Fully understood and lovingly known. That certainty is a source of comfort and gives something to hold on to.

He himself knows God as the One who cares about the fate of his people (see Exodus 2:24–25).

What we read in Jeremiah 12:3 applies to him: But you, O LORD, know me; you see me, and test my heart toward you. How beautiful when someone may know and confess this!
